That the people behind the light, modern Florence care about beer is obvious from the phenomenal range on offer and the helpful tasting notes on all the pumps. In fact, as the copper vats just beyond the main bar show, they care about it enough to brew their own, and their fruity Dam Tasty Beaver and Bonobo beers are in no way overshadowed by the competition at the bar (Meantime Pale Ale, Duvel Green).
A regularly updated menu (slow-roast lamb, white bean chilli and the like) is well matched by an imaginative wine list. Past the vats, a roomy conservatory with a table football table and an open kitchen leads to a capacious decked terrace and a separate children’s and garden room. Popular with all ages, and deservedly so.
